Dale Imafuku

My first name is Dale, but that's not the name I want to talk about. I would rather talk about my nickname, Alphageek. An alphageek is the geek that other geeks go to for advice. Because I build computers, troubleshoot computers, program computers, and do everythihng with computers, I was given this name by my friends. I built my first computer 30 years ago, and haven't stopped. Luckily, it is a name that fits me, and I actually like it.
